I Object! Tackling Ethical Objections to the Bible
March 11, 2016
9:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Dr. Stephen Cook

Does the Bible really say Violence, Slavery, and Homophobia are Okay? Contemporary Atheist Authors and Hate Groups say it does, but could God really support those sorts of things? In this Friday morning session, Prof. Stephen Cook will lead attendees through a closer look at the Bible and its "Hard Sayings," arguing that the answer is "Certainly Not!" The Atheists and Hate Groups are fundamentally mistaken about Scripture's meaning. Come learn something about reading the Bible theologically and hermeneutically!
